A R Rahman turns writer, producer!
The 47-year-old Jai Ho! hitmaker, who composed music for I and Kochadaiiyaan: The Legend, said he is happy to work with two stalwarts of Indian cinema Rajinikanth and Shankar in the same year.

There were reports that celebrated Indian singer-composer is planning to direct a movie soon but he has a different story to tell.

“I am not thinking about directing. I am scripting a film and also co-producing it. It’s in the process,” he said.Directed by Shankar, I features Vikram in the lead role.  

The film that is slated for Jan 9 release, also features Amy Jackson and Upen Patel in pivotal roles.
Talking about the film, Rahman said: “Shankar told me about this story 15 years back and since then he nurtured and worked on this story. I knew about this film so I did this film.”

Rahman is once again in the race for an Academy Award this year. His work for Million Dollar Arm, The Hundred-Foot Journey and Indian film Kochadaiiyaan are part of the long list released by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on its website recently.
